Re: carby leaks

The plate and the thick gasket that goes with it is the heat insulator; they usually don't leak but leaks from above leak onto the plate (eg. from worn butterfly spindles usually). Get an overhaul kit from Nardek http://www.nardek.com.au/default.html

Re: carby leaks

PS what engine and what carburettor ( should be a 2 barrel stromberg0. I think some of these like the HQ V8's also had the one way only mixture screw for air pollution control that allowed you to screw it in for a leaner mixture but not out for a richer mixture. The screw essentially cut its own thread when you screwed it in and leaked or fell out when you tried to unscrew it.

Re: carby leaks

If you are not going to do it yourself the cheapest way would be to get a exchange carburettor fitted by a specialist carburettor place.
